In Their Own Words

In the First Person is a landmark index to English language personal narratives, including letters, diaries, memoirs, autobiographies, and oral histories. Working with archives, repositories, publishers, and individuals they have indexed first person narratives from hundreds of published volumes—those that are publicly available on the Web and those that are held by repositories and archives around the world. This release of 'In the First Person' provides in-depth indexing of more than 2,500 collections of oral history in English from around the world. When the project is complete they hope to make it possible to find and explore the voices of more than 300,000 individuals.
